The property is situated along a private no through farm access road which is owned by the farm and is shared with one other property, Cennen Barn opposite.
The property is set on a southerly facing bank overlooking the beautiful Cennen Valley and was once part of a much larger farm.
It has been utilised by the Vendors as a private stud over the years and they also keep cattle.
In the Agent’s opinion the property offers comfortable accommodation, with great scope for enlargement to the far side, subject to necessary planning permissions being obtained.
The property is situated just outside the popular village of Trapp which has a public house at the time of writing and also the renowned Cennen Castle. The larger village of Ffairfach is nearby where there is schooling, general stores, etc. The popular market town of Llandeilo is within easy striking distance with a wide range of independent shops, facilities and amenities including garages, etc. Cross Hands to the South is also readily accessible with a wide variety of shopping facilities including Leekes department store and access onto the A48 dual carriageway, giving access to both Carmarthen and the M4 linking to Swansea.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
I really wanted to thank everyone at Rural Scene for the brilliant service you all gave during the sale of our farm. Everyone I spoke to was so polite and couldn't have been more helpful. Even when things got a bit stressful you sorted it all out for us. We will certainly recommend you to friends and should we move again, we will definitely use Rural scene again.
